Аналитика слота Gates of Olympus

Many video slot manufacturers create similar models. An example is the Gates of Olympus slot machine from Pragmatic Play.

This mechanic first appeared in the Sweet Bonanza slot from the same manufacturer.

The main difference of the Gates of Olympus slot machine is the appearance of special Multiplier symbols (multiplier) not only in the bonus game, but also in the regular game. The provider also increased the frequency of any payout in the main gameplay. Which Pragmatic Play model to choose - this review will help you figure it out. The editors tested 1000 spins of Gates of Olympus. Information was also collected on the bonus purchase function.

Expert review

For a more reliable experiment, the gaming segment was divided into intervals of 100 spins. Testing took place in the automatic spins mode

The first impression of the slot is frequent wins. Payouts happen in about every fourth spin. Continuing the test revealed that half of these winnings are less than 1 bet. And this is taking into account the frequent respins.

The falling symbols mechanic gives theoretically infinite re-spins. Each new free spin (more precisely, a fall) occurs after a win.

The table contains the main information obtained on the basis of the test.

Max payout in the bonus gamex122

In 1000 test rounds receive only 11 payouts exceeding 10 bets. A skid of x100 or more in the main game is possible with several Multiplier symbols on the reels. The multipliers range from x2 to x500.

Игровой процесс
Basic gameplay

Free spins follow the same pattern as the main game. The only difference is that the drop-down coefficients are accumulated (summed up) and give the final multiplication at the end of the free spins. There are 15 free spins in total, 5 unlimited rollovers.

The maximum payout in both the main and bonus games is x5000 (provider limit). Considering that during the test it was possible to see the x25 multiplier once and x10 multiple times, such a skid is real.

Expert advice

The Gates of Olympus (Pragmatic Play) slot machine, despite its high volatility, can be called balanced. There is no deep bankroll drawdown. The slot payouts in the base game and the free spins are evenly distributed.

This is an effective strategy to gradually increase the bet after 50 or 100 bad spins. A bankroll of 2,000 initial bets (including further increases in even increments) seems unkillable. It makes sense to fix any plus as soon as it is formed.

Important. 1000 test rounds is not enough distance. Before playing in an online casino, it is advisable to double-check in demo mode.

The second consequence of the even distribution of payouts is the suitability of the slot for wagering casino bonuses, despite its high volatility. Pragmatic Play slots are usually not prohibited when the bonus is active.
